Early Stage Research

Since 2012, 375 project teams have applied for CMI early-stage seed grants and 81 have received awards up to $25,000 for a total of over $1.56M invested. Hundreds of collaborations between engineers and clinicians have resulted. At least half of the projects have resulted in significant intellectual property. Ten projects are currently moving into commercialization phases funded by industry licensees, SBIR grants, and other resources from the investment community.


The CMI mission is to foster collaborations among engineers, clinicians, students, industry and others interested in advancing the translation of innovative biomedical technologies toward commercial realization.
